WHO WE ARE

Making a Real Difference in People’s Lives.

Spotlight UK started in April 2009.  We started out to provide low cost activities to help increase confidence and self esteem to children and young people across Basingstoke.  However this vision quickly grew and we were able to provide emotional and practical support as well as enjoyable and fun activities to hundreds of children and young people across the area every year.

Year by year we have grown our support and now work across Basingstoke & Deane, West Berkshire, Reading, Hart and Rushmoor, and soon in Salford and across London.
